In the most ambitious exploration of the aesthetic possibilities of the mobile App; Turner Contemporary became a surfing zone between global artists in diverse latitudes, drawn together in a boundary defining series of live performances, interviews for smartphones, intimate chat and dialogues on the topic of Risk.
